Mission: As one of the leading adventure and outdoor retailers in Canada, working for Atmosphere is not like working for any other company. Why? Because we carry the top brands, employ expert team members, provide the best customer service, and we have a lot of fun.
I worked at Atmosphere part-time (More than 3 years)
This is a great part-time job! I worked here for 3.5 years while completing my university degree.
- Flexible schedule
- Valued work-life balance
- Understanding managers
- Staff socials
- Fun work associated community engagement and volunteer opportunities
- Not many opportunities for upward movement
- Not many opportunities for substantial raises
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Atmosphere (West Vancouver, BC) in October-2016.
On the first working day after I applied online, I received an email with sort of a personality test. There were about 60 questions that needed to be answered. It took me around 15 minutes to complete it. After I submitted the personality test, they called on the same day. I've been interviewed by a really nice and friendly lady, who actually helped me to relax a lot. She asked about my outdoor experience, about my previous jobs, my availability... Then she told me that she'll ask some situational questions, which took us another 15 minutes. The questions were very typical: why would you like to work for us, tell me 3 things that will make you a good Atmosphere candidate, stuff like that. She told me that I did really well and she's confident I'd get the job. She scheduled an in store interview for me in 10 days.
The manager and the interview were so relaxing and great. We talked about my immigration experience, about my country, about Canada, but most of all - about mountaineering. I enjoyed that, because I have a lot of mountaineering experience, so we explored every aspect of it. He asked only one work related question - how would I act if a costumer told me that they wanted to try hiking for the first time? He told me right away that I got the job.
All in all, it was a great, informal, relaxing experience.
